A plainspoken 95 year-old, World War II, Navy veteran’s letter to Obama – questions the media should ask.

Harold Estes, a United States Navy veteran of World War II, enlisted in the Navy in 1934.  He served 23 years total and now lives in Honolulu near Pearl Harbor.  At the time of his letter to President Obama, he was 95 years old.

In the letter, he gives Obama some advice about being Commander-in-Chief and takes Obama and Mrs. Obama to task for some of the comments that have been made by them since being in office such as “America is arrogant.” and “America hasn’t lived up to her ideals.”

Short read and packs a wallop.
